Cannot Remove PUP.Optional.BrowseFOX.A


Recommended Posts

I am trying to remove a single instance of PUP.Optional.BrowseFOX.A from a Windows 7 laptop.  I got the PUP from Cnet in a download and after figuring out what to get rid of, I unstalled all programs I installed that day.  I ran Malwarebytes and removed everything.  Since then I run Malwarebytes over and over again and I find one instance that I remove.  I rebotted and the thing showed up again.  I can remove the Pup and it stays gone for a few minutes and then after 15 minutes or so I run Malwarebytes again and it is back.  I have done this multiple time and Malwarebytes nor Norton can find it in the registry or remove it


How do i get rid of this malware instance?
